1. We're not afraid to kill, we just prefer not to
Jacob E ,   Holon, Israel   (10.15.13)
They're teaching children to confront soldiers with weapons. And then they will be surprised when those kids get shot one day. I really think the IDF should figure out some way to return fire with rocks somehow. We're the decendents of David, we should find some way of doing it. Put a "rock launcher" in the jeeps and shoot rocks back at these idiots. Then tell the media this is the "proportional response" they always cry about.
2. Shame on IDF comanders
Philippe ,   raanana   (10.15.13)
Those IDF soldiers are instructed by their commanders not to respond.This is a clear license for arabs to show who is the boss on the ground.What a terrible political error
3. THanks G-D, the IDF is not Israel's ...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (10.15.13)
sole protector, "In Israel,in order to be a realist,you must believe in miracles"David Ben Gurion. However, at the attention of the leaders: Believe but don't rely on miracles.
4. What is it that you want them to do
David ,   On this planet   (10.15.13)
If they use force you criticize them, should they throw rocks back at them or stay and get pelted.Make up your mind politicians sitting in Tel Aviv
5. A Simple Solution
A Simple Jew ,   Jerusalem   (10.15.13)
First, lock them up. Second, hire lots of hearing officers Third, give every migrant a summary hearing within a few months. Then, if the person is a refugee, set them free. If the person is an economic migrant, then lock them up until they decide to leave.
6. The IDF Never Taught Me To Retreat
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (10.15.13)
Only to charge. This has to be our modus operandi. Nothing else can be tolerated, and if a commander on any level can't pack the gear, replace him with someone who can.
7. soldiers don' t have the normal right to counter attack !
8. Rock Launcher
Marc ,   Montreal, Canada   (10.16.13)
Brilliant idea Jacob!!!!! I love it! Shoot rocks back at them, just as hard as they throw at us. As soon as they start hurting, this will not happen again. If it does we can always say it is a very proportionate response!!!!!
9. In US if you shoot a stone thrower you are egxonerated
leo ,   usa   (10.16.13)
by court. There were cases of Mexicans throwing stones across the border and court even found one US border guard who shot and killed one of them to be justified in his actions.
10. Simple solution to stone throwers.
Joe Bliksem ,   Raanana Israel   (10.16.13)
A very simple and effective solution is to simply shoot at them with shotguns loaded with salt. Does not kill,hurts like hell ....and everybody is happy.
11. # 9 "exonerated" Leo, without the "g".
Ariel ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (10.16.13)
12. IDF Is A Joke
Ariel ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (10.16.13)
B"H - I was arrested and fingerprinted in the Shomron for demonstrating against Arabs being bought into my yishuv to work not long ago by an IDF jeep like the one on the video, operated by two Arabs
13. arab stone throwers
jennifer ,   jerusalem, Israel   (10.16.13)
stones are a LETHAL WEAPON I say soldiers should shoot to KILL and without hesitation! ENOUGH JEWISH BLOOD has been spilled!
14. Ariel @11, thank you, but you still would be exonerated.
leo ,   usa   (10.16.13)
15. Video: Palestinians throw stones, soldiers leave
George Weiss ,   Teaneck, USA   (10.16.13)
No matter what the IDF says, the facts are that Arab stone throwing and damage from it has increased. The IDF is obviously not doing it's job. The reason could be political or just not caring.
16. Use reubber bullets & water
Reuven   (10.17.13)
cannons that contain pig blood & announce it. That will stop the rock throwers.
